Floridians Demand Answers on Torture

Because Human Rights First is a 501(c)(3) organization, there are legal limits on the kinds of information we can publish on this blog. For example, while we’re working to make ending torture and cruel treatment an issue in the 2008 presidential campaign, we won’t be able to post directly on what the presidential candidates are saying.
